OCT 26TH TO NOV 1ST, 2007


Overall Catch Success Rate 97%

BILLFISH: This week we again had excellent fishing with pretty much all the boats catching fish, that is for those that were not entered in the Bisbee (last day was the 27th and these vessels decided to concentrate exclusively on blue marlin). Eighty three percent of our charters were able to catch marlin, with striped marlin as usual the dominant species, in the 110 to 190 lb class. The Pacific was the best place to fish with Golden Gate one of the better locations. The Finger Bank was also going off, but at 50 to 55 miles one way was further than most boats cared to venture, however, those wishing to pay a fuel surcharge were delighted to fish that location.  Our top boat this week was “Tracy Ann” with 8 striped marlin released at the Finger Bank for Paul Giles from Anacortes, Wa and Bob Richards from Trucker, Ca on October 28th. Next day out this same boat was fortunate to release 7 and catch 3 dorado for Dave Bales from La Vista fishing with buddies Kevin Ritz and Jerry Carter from Oceanside, California, this time at Golden Gate. “Bill Collector” had an outstanding day on the 28th for Mr Chiavetta Sr. releasing 8 striped marlin and boating 6 tuna and 5 dorado.  Pretty much all the fish were caught between San Jaime and Golden Gate and on live bait. Pisces anglers caught a total of 154 billfish of which all but on were released, consisting of 152 striped marlin and 2 sailfish.


OTHER SPECIES: Dorado catches were still very good this week with fifty two percent of boats catching fish from  15 to 45 lbs. Most of the dorado were caught on lures of assorted color with catches between one and ten fish.  Yellow fin tuna catches were not abundant, but then again, most boats were fishing for striped marlin, so it was a nice surprise when Mextime pulled up with a 120 lb fish for Martin and Patty Dominski from Littleton, Co on October 30th  – in fact they caught a total of 5 yellowfin ranging from 10 all the way up to the big 120 lb’er on a combination of live bait and lures, including the Mexican flag. Not much of anything else except a couple of small mako sharks a small wahoo and a couple of small skipjacks.

BEST LURES: live bait for marlin, petrolero,  bait, cedar plugs and assorted lures for tuna, lures for dorado; red/yellow, green/yellow.
